CONNECTING EMPATHY RESEARCH 

TO PRACTICE FOR A PEACEFUL WORLD.

 

We believe that empathy, the drive to identify with another’s thoughts and feelings, and to respond to these with an appropriate emotion, is the key to building peaceful, just and fair communities. Our goal is to advance empathy research and its applications to evidence based conflict transformation, peace building and reconciliation processes.

We support research efforts that explore the relationship between biological and environmental factors and our ability to empathize and/or that can be translated into evidence based results to improved community relations, stronger human rights policies, and a more compassionate world.
We support community organizations and groups in applying empathy research to develop evidence based initiatives that lead to improved community relations, stronger human rights policies, and a more compassionate and constructive approach to marginalized communities who have long faced poor living conditions.
